I see myself as O.K. and normal, until someone reminds me that I am fat.

I see myself as being fat, too fat. There are many things over the past two years for which I am proud of myself for. Things I would never have imagined I would accomplish or have in me to follow through with but I have. Now here I am with no other choice than to address the fact that I am fat because I am an emotional eater.

Hello,

I can absolutely relate!! I lost quite a bit of weight a few summers back and that is precisely how I felt..that I did not know how to handle it. I can definitely relate and you are not alone!

That's fantastic news Goanna2, be very proud!! I read yesterday (on SP) instead of saying '1 step forward 2 steps back', reverse it and make the saying positive - '2 steps forward 1 step back'.....
keep chipping away at the negativity and you will win this battle I'm sure. Also enjoy every minute of your new challenge, brilliant!!

I see myself as someone who is constantly trying to be something she may never become; and someone that will never be as thin as she use to be. It's weird. Sometimes I see myself as a survivor, sometimes I see myself as a literally THE BIGGEST LOSER. I don't understand it. My weight has been something I have been trying to control for the last 10 years. I want to get it off and change my eating habits for a healthier life; but I staying on the wagon is so hard for me. I've tried EVERYTHING. I'll lose, then it comes back-lose, then come back-lose, the come back. I'm so tired of the hassle. I just want to be able to look in the mirror again and like what I see all over.

I'm going to be honest. I see myself as a victim of my own dark thoughts. I see myself as someone who eats her emotions away. Someone who is only kidding herself into thinking she's ever going to be more than a fat phone jockey working for a company she hates.

I am beginning to get down on myself. I have relaxed my eating habits too much, haven't weighed and unfortunately, this morning I had gained. I thought I would just check and see, sure enough I had gained. What hurts is that I stuck to good eating habits for three years (short two months). I had lost 39 pounds, and relaxing has made me gain some back .Can we never relax and just enjoy eating without thinking"how many calories" " how much fat content" "how much sugar content etc etc. So you see I am down on myself for letting this happen.

I honestly don't know how I see myself. I think it's part of this whole thing. I've lost 62 pounds and I honestly don't know how I look. Every single picture surprises me, and I still think I'm "huge". Even looking in the mirror all I see is rolls (and I'm only 10 pounds from my goal). I have so much soul searching to do. Hope this team helps.

This may sound weird. But I see myself as skinnier and not that fat. Which is why I think I got this far gone. I weight 230 lbs and already lost 30 lbs. But...... I see myself as 160 lb person. Until I look in the mirror. I feel like I can't even recognize my own face. Had I not seen it for the last 5-10 years I might have looked at my face in the mirror and said who the hell is that. I almost feel like it's the opposite of anorexia. Instead of seeing myself fat, I see myself as skinny, there for I think I can eat anything I want.



I'm not losing this fat, I'm removing it because I never want to find it again.

Today I feel pretty good about myself. I see someone giving my best to eat healthier, exercise, and support others on this journey.

I'm not sure how long I can keep this going, but I'm not going to follow any brain meanderings into fears of failure.

Instead, I'm going to keep my head in today.

Peace,
Karen

I see myself as the glue to my family, depended on and although I mostly come through, I feel selfish and guilty if I don't.

Three words? Mother, wife, failure.

I don't think as a mother and wife that you can ever do enough for your family and therefore you blame yourself for alot of things you shouldn't.
It's time for me to let go of that idea, it really is ok if I take care of me!!

(wow, this thread really opened up my eyes!!)

Fat, old and disgusting. i know what needs to be done to change.. the hardest is the mindset.. i need to work on that. If i dont like myself how can anyone else like me. sometimes it scares me how often i talk about how much easier my families life would be without me. at least they would have the money they need to take care of Devon(disabled grandson) and his mother (cervical cancer)
somedays i wish there was a reason for being here.

Honestly that is the hardest question. Right now I see myself as being lost. Somewhere inside this huge shell is a woman crying to get out who is energetic, confidant, compassionate, and never ashamed of her appearance. Someone who loves herself. Sad HUH!!!

Right now I feel happy. I am working hard and eating right. I just wish my hubby would stop buying my almond joy bars. I really think he doesn't want me to lose weight. Yesterday I gave it to my son but he doesn't like that kind and then I just ate it. If he gets one today I'm putting it in the trash.
